If you haven’t heard of the Piano Guys, you really should check them out!  This Cello Piano duo has unbelievable talent and amazing videos that will leave you at a loss for words.

Clara C (or Clara Chung) after her rise to fame from Kollaboration 10 in LA has posted tons of covers and originals of her singing or playing guitar.  Here is a recent one of a popular Macklemore song “Thrift Shop”.  This is an awesome jazzy cover of rap song and she KILLS it.  Check it out.

Scott Hoying, Kevin Olusola, and Luke Edgemon perform an amazing cover of Call Me Maybe by Carly Rae Jepson.  There are no bad songs, just bad renditions.  Speechless… 

Kiah Victoria sings Thinkin’ Bout You by Frank Ocean in a sexy smooth piano/background vocals cover.  Check out her facebook fan page @ http://www.facebook.com/kiahvictoria/  

The Pirate Bay a sharing site for music and video that has seen a lot of press recently since being banned in the UK by many major Internet Service Providers.  Ironically, since the ban proxy servers trying to keep the sharing site up and running have seen more traffic possibly due to the publicity or as a protest against the government restricting online content.  While protecting the copyrights of the music industry is a noble cause, it can’t come from government.  It has to be individual people who realize that large scale piracy hurts the industry as a whole.

This a cappella group is a local group from Northeastern in Boston.  If you love a cappella and haven’t heard of them yet, you should definitely check them out.  I can personally say that they are amazing live and am so lucky to have shared the stage with them.  Check out Give Me Love/Cold War by the Nor’easters

This is a really old one, and I bet most people have heard it already, but Mac Lethal is definitely one of the best rappers on Youtube.  He can rip through lyrics like busta but unlike a lot of people out there you can hear his lyrics and he keeps his flow.  Check him out if you haven’t already.

Watsky!  I don’t know how I never heard of him until now, but this recent college grad is pursuing a rap career on his terms and seems to be doing alright.  Dude has some serious writing talent, check it out.

Loved this past season of the Sing-Off.  Due to some copyright issues several of these videos have been removed from Youtube, but I’m sure they can still be found somewhere.

Tyler Ward here with a cover of Super Bass by Nicki Menage.  Its nice to hear an acoustic cover of this song, because its so different.  Eppic and Alex G do a good job trying to keep up with Nicki’s verses, and Alex has some great harmonies in the chorus.  This crew recently went on tour.  Tyler has some newer vids including a cover of Moves like Jagger with Katy McAllister, but the rhythm guitar gets a little repetitive. These are guys are really great tho, check em out.
